It would, but there's nowhere that carries the parts I would need in the area. I'd have to order the parts online.

Which would still likely be cheaper.

Uh oh. Post counts on the recent topics list don't go past 1000. We're at 1002 now and it is stuck at 1000. =P

Thing is, between quality, time and savings, you have to choose two of the three. I need a decent system (not incredibly powerful but a decent CPU is important) and I need it ASAP. Ideally I can get the servers running by next monday if I buy a pre-built system, or by the week after that if I build a system myself to save a bit of money. Take your pick.

If your only reason for buying a pre-built system is to get it to the players faster then we can definitely wait. Money savings is more important than getting the server to us a week early. :)

You may or may not have heard of pcpartpicker? Amazon and other online retailers may be useful for getting good deals, and it organises all that neatly.

Even used parts can build something decent. You could even use some form of Linux instead of Windows to save a bit more.

So, I came up with a setup for the server. I prioritized decent RAM and a good CPU, and went cheap on everything else. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2h2xqs

I had to pick a dedicated graphics card as the CPU I chose doesn't have an integrated GPU.

I'm actually planning on trying out ReactOS on this build. It's basically an open source version of Windows, minus a few advanced features that I probably won't need for a server. It has a bit of an issue with Java, but hopefully that will be fixed soon. If not, well, I could always fall back to Ubuntu.

NEVER scrimp on a PSU... If that thing goes wrong it could explode.

Is this only going to be used as a server for Minecraft? If so, why 1TB HDD?

Additional network card? That motherboard has built in ethernet.

I'm gonna see if I can make a list...

EDIT: Here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tcVFLk Intel G3258 option: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pwHWvK

I changed the PSU for something better, removed the network card and graphics card (The MoBo in the AMD build does have built in graphics apparently.) and opted for some cheaper, but still good RAM.

The G3258 is a cheap overclockable Intel processor, but it's only a dual core: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646g3258

Single core performance is better than that 6350 though.

I use the inbuilt ethernet on my motherboard, but aren't network cards more reliable/deliver better results on some motherboards?

The difference, if any, would probably not be worth the added cost.

But for a server? Maximizing uptime and minimizing lag is critical.

Also, I'd still rather have the Corsair Vengeance RAM. That's the one thing I have a strict brand requirement with.
